On this page you can listen to samples of 6 metre DX signals received in Melbourne since the early eighties. Some of the contacts were conducted on 52 Mhz before we gained use of 50 Mhz.I highly recommend getting a copy of the G2 real audio player to listen to these sound files.
Finally I would like to thank Gil VK3AUI (SK 27/11/03) for the loan of his 6m DX log tapes since I have lost mine.

 49.750 TV Video signals on 49.750 Mhz from Russia and China is a very good indicator for possible openings to JA and other countries this particular recording was made by VK2FLR, These signals are very commonly heard in Melbourne and with such strong signals that can cause TV crud on 50 Mhz.
